The National Insurance Institute is at your side during your life, from birth to advanced age, granting you a variety of social rights adapted to changing life situations.
The National Insurance Institute is responsible for the social security of Israeli residents.
Its primary mission is to ensure means of subsistence for those unable to earn their living.
The National Insurance Institute collects insurance contributions from all residents according to their social background and status, and pays benefits to those entitled. Hence, the income of economically established groups is transferred to weak and vulnerable groups and, thereby, the National Insurance Institute contributes to a more equitable distribution of national income and the reduction of dimensions of poverty.

The "Counseling Service for the Elderly and Their Families" is designed to assist you, members of the elderly community, in dealing with a range of challenges that stand before you, at this stage of your life.
At your service in Service Centers, located for your convenience in every NII branch, are volunteering retirees, duly trained with professional courses, who would enjoy to give you personal counseling, help in taking-up your rights, social visits at home and more.
At Service Centers, you will find a warm and relaxed atmosphere, a sympathetic ear to any problem, little or big, and when necessary, you will be referred by the counselor to other service hubs in the community for further care.
Besides personal counseling, you can receive info and guidance in the context of Information Days held by the service for various groups: widows and widowers, divorcees and divorced men, new retirees, etc. You can also participate to support groups held by the service for those groups with professional hosts.
